Went on outing with wife on way to NC mountains to get kids from camp. Did the purple trail out and back. Easy trail. No paved trails but most is wide. There are some moderate sections but good for the beginner to moderate rider. Advanced riders looking for a challenge will be disappointed. Marked well could extend trail by connecting either red loops and/or orange loop. There are two parts of park: Day side and Camping side. We were allowed to ride on both for $4/car (2 bikes). Well worth it. There are areas to buy water/drinks/snacks and restrooms.

3.69 mile red trail. Very nice peaceful, secluded walk with a beautiful lake view. Can definitely see how after a rain it would be very muddy 1/4 of the way. Lots of stones, tree roots and horse poop so you really have to watch your footing. Some hills but nothing too difficult. Very well marked.

A good workout but it was a bit muddy in places. It's been several days since it rained but I guess the indirect sun takes awhile to dry out the ground. My son and I hiked the red trail - most of it. Pretty views even in the winter.

Cane Creek Park in Waxhaw NC has several color coded trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The total combined distance is 13.59 miles. Most of the trails are very peaceful, and make for a very relaxing day hike. The park surrounds a 350 acre lake which adds to the scenery while trekking the trails, and also adds to the different species of wildlife you may encounter.

Biked most of the Purple trail and all of the North Red loop. Trails vary greatly from hills, fields, rocky, rooty, smooth, etc. Most of the mtn bike trails are shared with horses. Be sure to stop and yield to horse riders. Beautiful views of the lake. Note: This is Union County's main (only?) park. The fees are $4 per car plus $3 per mtn bike.
